Fun for the Family at Azul Beach Hotel, Riviera Maya

The Riviera Maya has always been one of my favorite vacation destinations so when I was invited to attend the #NickExperience at the Azul Beach Hotel for my friend Scarlet at Family Focus Blog, I was excited beyond words.

Why We Love The General Mills Box Top Program

“Do you want to purchase some wrapping paper?” “How about a tin of cookie dough?” “A school t-shirt?” I know I can’t be the only parent who wasn’t thrilled to see an endless parade of fundraisers coming home. As a parent and a former teacher, I know how important funding is for schools. I spent so much of my own money buying supplies for my classroom my husband once remarked, “Do you think we could spend some of this money on us?” My answer, “Sure, as soon as I purchase the crayons and paper my kids need.” That’s one of the reasons I have always loved the General Mills Box Tops for Education program. I can purchase items I use every day and still save money for the kids’ school.
